By Nevada News Bureau Staff: A new license plate honoring women veterans was unveiled today as part of Veterans Day ceremonies at the Boulder City Veterans Home.
The new plate was created by legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Elliot Anderson, D-Las Vegas, who said he brought the idea forward at the request of a group of women who had served in the military. The plate is expected to be available beginning Dec. 7.
“This is an excellent way to pay tribute to the women who have sacrificed so much for their country, but who are still often overlooked when we find ways to express our gratitude to our veterans,” Anderson said.
Gov. Brian Sandoval, Anderson and other lawmakers unveiled the plate.
Money raised from the sales of the plates will be used to provide services to Nevada veterans.
